PROPERTY RECORD INFORMATION

 
Effingham County Tax Assessors Minimize

WHAT WE DO

It is the responsibility of the Board of Tax Assessors to ensure all personal property and all real property have been returned for taxation at the proper valuation.  It is the duty of the county appraisal staff to make appraisals of the fair market value of all taxable property; maintain tax records and maps for the county; prepare annual assessments of taxable property; mail assessment notices; inspect mobile homes for proper decal display; and provide information to the Georgia Department of Revenue as requested.

The Board of Tax Assessors hold meetings the first Monday of every month
(Canceled or Postponed meetings will be published 24 hours before the scheduled meeting)

 
PROPERTY TAX RETURN Minimize
Filing a property tax return allows the property owner to state the "value" of their property and ensure all taxable items are listed to avoid penalties or incorrect taxation. Filing of this document may create a review of the county's value of the property being returned. Reasonable notice is hereby provided that an onsite inspection by a member of the county appraisal staff may be required. Said property visit will be for the purpose of determining the correctness of the information contained in the county's appraisal record for the property being returned.

HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION Minimize

Did You File for Homestead??

The term homestead exemption refers to exemptions from property tax that homeowners may claim. As of January 1st of the current year you must own and reside in the property to claim an exemtion for that year. If you  wish to file for HOMESTEAD, ensure you get your application in by April 1st of the current year for the exemptions to reflect on your current year tax bill. Eligible residents may file year round but the exemption deadline to be effective for any given year is April 1. So if you file by April 1st the exemptions are effective that eyar, if you file after April 1, the exemption becomes effective the following year. Once you have applied for homestead you do not need to re-apply unless you are eligible for further exemptions. You may only claim Homestead on ONE piece of property in or out of county. The authorized exemption will be deducted from your assessed value, and will estabilish a homestead based for you once approved.

Requirements are:  You must own and live on the property.  Please bring a copy of a utility bill to show proof of residence. Bring your DL for proof of identity. If you are 62 and older or a disabled Veteran, additional exemptions may be available; bring in your income tax return to see if you meet the requirements for additional exemptions.
